When your baby is newborn they are visually stimulated by what they start to see right in front of them. There are 2 stages of use for the turtle gym that your little one can use straight from newborn. Stage 1 Overhead gym with a musical turtle and 3 different hanging characters to keep them amused. The turtle also has a large-view mirror that encourages self discovery. Stage 2 The gym can convert for "tummy-time" play, your little still gets all of the fun activities from the overhead play but is strengthening their muscles in their arms and their neck at the same time. Each character has different parts to them that your little one can discover, the textures and the colours and the objects that are attached to them. Suitable from newborn. Requires 3 x AA batteries for use.
